The reflection and transmission characteristics of circular elastic cylinders arranged periodically in an elastic slab are examined. A simple approach synthesized from Fourier-Bessel expansions and the T-matrix method has been used for the analysis of a twodimensional problem involving P and SV waves. The computed results are of importance in grating theory as well as in noise control, although the procedure given is restricted to only the low-frequency regime. PACS numbers: 43.20.Fn.
